Hello everybody,

I want to access several file servers over CIFS from a WebSphere Application
Server. The authentication is done by the following lines.

 Config.setProperty("jcifs.smb.client.domain", "ad.test");
 Config.setProperty("jcifs.smb.client.username", "user");
 Config.setProperty("jcifs.smb.client.password", "pw");		
 Config.setProperty("jcifs.resolveOrder", "DNS,WINS");

I think this is NTLM authentication. Since Kerberos is not working in this
environment, I would be glad to get some hints how to secure this connection.
(authentication and data transfer)

Any idea welcome...
